Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide is set to open its fifth Westin brand hotel in the greater Houston region of Texas in collaboration with The Howard Hughes Corporation.
The new property, The Westin, The Woodlands, will debut at the end of 2015 within The Woodlands, a master planned community and business centre located 27 miles north of downtown Houston.
The property will have 302 guest rooms, more than 15,000ft² of meeting and pre-function space, an outdoor pool, WestinWORKOUT studio, business centre and all of the brand’s signature amenities.
It will also feature a 150-seat restaurant, lobby bar and second level pool deck and bar, with direct access to The Fountains at Waterway Square.
Westin Hotels & Resorts and Le Méridien Hotels global brand leader Brian Povinelli said: "We look forward to growing our presence in the Houston area and introducing the Westin brand to The Woodlands, a vibrant and fast-growing business and entertainment hub."
"The Westin, The Woodlands will appeal to both business and leisure travellers seeking to recharge and revitalize with the help of the Westin brand’s signature programs and amenities, designed to send them home feeling better than when they arrived," Povinelli added.
Starwood Hotels & Resorts senior vice president of North America development Allison Reid said: "Having opened its 200th hotel worldwide this year, Westin is a popular choice among owners and developers in markets throughout North America, due to its distinctive wellness positioning, innovative products and brand-led programs."
